Duquesne Light Co. Marketplace Terms and Conditions

These Standard Terms and Conditions for Participants and the Participation Registration (collectively, the “Agreement”) are made and entered into by and between CLEAResult Consulting Inc., a Texas corporation and/or an affiliate thereof (“CLEAResult”), and Customer for the purpose of receiving incentives and access for products related to energy efficient measures (“EEM”), the “Program” funded by Duquesne Light Company. CLEAResult and Customer may be referred to in this Agreement individually as a “Party” and collectively as the “Parties.” The Parties acknowledge and agree that the state regulatory governing body (the “PUC”) and Sponsor are third party beneficiaries of this Agreement. In consideration of the mutual covenants and agreements set forth below, the adequacy and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the Parties hereby agree as follows:

  1. REGISTRATION: The registration (“Participation Registration”) must be filled out completely, truthfully and accurately. Incentives provided through the Online Marketplace in the form of Duquesne Light Customer pricing and incentives are subject to funding availability and may change. The person registering is the “Participant.” By registering on the Online Marketplace, Participant certifies that he/she is eligible for Sponsor services and incentives.
  2. ELIGIBILITY Online marketplace merchandise is available to participants who are Duquesne Light customers. Eligible participants may order up to 10 LED lamps, 10 LED fixtures, 10 ENERGY STAR dehumidifiers, 5 ENERGY STAR room air conditioners, 10 advanced power strips, 5 ENERGY STAR certified smart thermostats, 5 connected thermostats, 5 energy efficient weatherization measures, and 1 electric hot water kit per program year. Resale products, products leased, rebuilt, rented, received from insurance claims, won as a prize, or new parts installed in existing products do not qualify. The product being discounted must be installed in a residential dwelling unit that is fully constructed and occupied. Sponsor reserves the right to verify installation. Final determination of eligibility shall rest solely with Sponsor.  CLEAResult may request verification of eligibility requirements at any time during the Program period.
  3. PROPERTY RIGHTS, SAFETY AND BUILDING CODES, VERIFICATION: Participant represents that Participant has the right to complete and/or install the energy-saving measures on the property on which those measures are completed and/or installed and that any necessary landlord's consent has been obtained. Participant also represents that, with respect to the products referenced in this application: (i) installation complies with all federal, state, and local safety, building and environmental codes, and (ii) products are installed per manufacturer’s instructions.  Participant's home may be selected for quality control post-installation.
  4. TAX LIABILITY: Sponsor is not responsible for any tax liability, which may be imposed on the Participant as a result of using the Online Marketplace. Sponsor is not providing tax advice, and any communication by Sponsor is not intended or written to be used, and cannot be used, for the purpose of avoiding penalties under the Internal Revenue Code.
  5. NO ENDORSEMENT: Sponsor does not endorse any particular manufacturer, contractor, or product. The fact that the names of particular manufacturers, contractors, products, or systems may appear on this application does not constitute an endorsement. Manufacturers, contractors, products, or systems not mentioned are not implied to be unsuitable or defective in any way.
  6. ENERGY INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATIONS RELEASE: Participant agrees to allow Sponsor to contact Participant regarding Online Marketplace orders. This release supersedes any previous request by the Participant to not be contacted. Sponsor will adhere to “do not contact” requests for communications unrelated to Online Marketplace purchases. Additionally, by participating in the Online Marketplace, Participant is opting in to receive communications from Duquesne Light Company.
  7. PRIVACY POLICY: Information provided to Sponsor is subject to Sponsor’s Privacy Policy. This policy provides that Duquesne Light Company may include Participant’s name, Duquesne Light’s services and resulting energy savings in reports or other documentation submitted to service providers, contractors, and affiliates. Duquesne Light Company will treat all other Participant information as confidential and report it only in the aggregate. Duquesne Light Company’s  Privacy Policy is at https://www.duquesnelight.com/customer-support/policies-forms/privacy-policy.
  8. NO WARRANTY: CLEARESULT, SPONSOR AND THE PUC MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES, AND ASSUME NO LIABILITY WITH RESPECT TO QUALITY, SAFETY, PERFORMANCE, OR OTHER ASPECT OF ANY EEM INSTALLED PURSUANT TO THIS AGREEMENT AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY SUCH REPRESENTATION, WARRANTY OR LIABILITY, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NONINFRINGEMENT. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to create any duty to, any standard of care with reference to, or any liability to any third party. Neither the PUC, Sponsor, nor CLEAResult shall be responsible for costs or corrections of conditions already existing in the facilities inspected which fail to comply with applicable laws and regulations.
  9. indemnification; LIMIT ON LIABILITY: CUSTOMER AGREES TO INDEMNIFY THE PUC, SPONSOR AND CLEARESULT AGAINST ALL LOSS, DAMAGES, COSTS AND LIABILITY ARISING FROM ANY CLAIMS RELATED TO ANY PRODUCTS INSTALLED OR SERVICES PERFORMED DURING THE INSTALLATION OR MAINTENANCE OF EEM. NEITHER THE PUC, SPONSOR, CLEARESULT, NOR CUSTOMER SHALL BE LIABLE TO EACH OTHER FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT.
  10. MISCELLANEOUS: This Agreement shall be governed by and construed under the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, without regard to conflict of law rules. The parties agree that all actions, disputes, claims and controversies arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the work performed hereunder will be subject to binding arbitration administered in the county where the Customer is located by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and judgment on the award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. Customer shall not assign, delegate, or subcontract this Agreement or its duties thereunder, in whole or in part, voluntarily or involuntarily (including a transfer to a receiver or bankruptcy estate) without the prior written permission of CLEAResult. CLEAResult may assign its rights and delegate its duties under this Agreement to any third party at any time without Customer’s consent. If any provision of this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, the other provisions in this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect in such jurisdiction and shall be liberally construed in order to effectuate the purpose and intent of this Agreement. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of this Agreement in any jurisdiction shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any such provision in any other jurisdiction. The failure of either Party to enforce strict performance by the other of any provision of this Agreement, or to exercise any right available to the Party under this Agreement, shall not be construed as a waiver of such Party’s right to enforce strict performance in the same or any other instance. Sections 1 and 5 through 10 shall survive the term of this Agreement.

I have read, understood, and agree to the Terms and Conditions.
